To demonstrate a rapid improvement of recalcitrant cystoid macular edema (CME) and perivascular leakage, in a patient with non-paraneoplastic autoimmune retinopathy and autoimmune optic neuropathy after treatment with sarilumab, a human anti-interleukin-6 (IL-6) receptor antibody.

Cystoid macular edema (CME) is a leading cause of blindness. In this study we assessed the efficacy and safety of Tocilizumab (TCZ) in refractory CME.
To assess the efficacy and safety of systemic interferon alpha-2a (IFN) for refractory pseudophakic cystoid macular edema (PCME).
The purpose of this study was to report the efficiency and safety of intravitreal aflibercept for the treatment of cystoid macular edema (CME) secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO).
In diabetic patients presenting with macular edema (ME) shortly after cataract surgery, identifying the underlying pathology can be challenging and influence management. Our aim was to develop a simpl...
To characterize the electroretinographic response of the macula by multifocal electroretinography (mfERG) in nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR) with and without diabetic macular edema (DME) ...
Cystoid macular edema (CME) is one of the common causes of vision loss in patients with UveitiS .Triamcinolone has been effectively used in reducing CME and improving the vision. Also the...
Prospective, observational cohort study evaluating the association between pre-surgical existence of an epiretinal membrane (ERM) and the development of pseudophakic cystoid macular edema ...
To test the efficacy of acetazolamide for the treatment of uveitis-associated cystoid macular edema.
Macular edema is the most common sight threatening complication of uveitis which can lead to permanent loss of central vision. Triamcinolone acetonide ( the study drug)injection for treatm...
This study is designed to evaluate the prevalence of different stages of diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema among patients suffering from type 1 diabetes (DM1) for 5 to 25 yea...
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.

Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
A bilateral retinopathy occurring in premature infants treated with excessively high concentrations of oxygen, characterized by vascular dilatation, proliferation, and tortuosity, edema, and retinal detachment, with ultimate conversion of the retina into a fibrous mass that can be seen as a dense retrolental membrane. Usually growth of the eye is arrested and may result in microophthalmia, and blindness may occur. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Disease of the RETINA as a complication of DIABETES MELLITUS. It is characterized by the progressive microvascular complications, such as ANEURYSM, interretinal EDEMA, and intraocular PATHOLOGIC NEOVASCULARIZATION.
Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
Autoimmune disorders are conditions that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. Normally the immune system's white blood cells help protect ...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
